This recipe comes from my great grandmother. We first had them this summer at a family reunion, and my toddler inhaled them.

½ c shortening
1 c sugar
1 egg
½ c applesauce
2 c flour
1 t soda
½ t cloves
½ t nutmeg
1 t cinnamon
½ t salt
Raisins or chocolate chips (opt.)

Preheat oven to 400°. Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs and applesauce. Stir in dry ingredients and raisins or chocolate chips if desired. Drop by tablespoons onto greased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Makes 2-3 dozen.
